Re: Welcome to the Q & A with Casey LaLonde

Dear April,
Thank you for the lovely comments. Thank you for the youtube link as well.

The old Mike Douglas and David Frost interviews are incredible to watch. Access to these gems is easy as pie now, thanks to the technology.

Thanks again!

Re: Welcome to the Q & A with Casey LaLonde

Hi Joe!

Thank you so much for the warm welcome and wonderful questions! I am so pleased we had such a good week of Q&A.

I couldn't agree more, my grandmother was the ultimate star!

Re: Welcome to the Q & A with Casey LaLonde

Hi Moira! My thanks to you, lynn, movieman1957 and klondike for moderating this exciting week of Q&A. It has been a sincere pleasure to be here and I look forward to continuing as a reader and poster of The Oasis. My grandmother’s friendship with Billy Haines is legendary. Joan met Billy while h...

Re: Welcome to the Q & A with Casey LaLonde

Good evening JackFavell! I plan to be online late tonight, so keep the questions coming! With the moderators’ permission, any questions that get posted after I logoff tonight will be answered tomorrow. The only thing on my agenda tomorrow is watching the Penn State / Kent State football game around ...

Re: Welcome to the Q & A with Casey LaLonde

Good evening Stuart, The Joan vs. Bette feud was, in my opinion, blown out of proportion over the years. There was the usual sniping between stars at competitor studios. There were the nasty comments over the years from both sides. Rumors swirled before, during and after the filming of Whatever Happ...

Re: Welcome to the Q & A with Casey LaLonde

Good evening Larry,

I just read the entire thread you forwarded. Your experiences are simply amazing! I am in splendid company on The Oasis!

I just don’t know where to begin, but thank you for the details. Again, I am simply amazed!

Please keep in touch.

Re: Welcome to the Q & A with Casey LaLonde

Good evening MissGoddess! You all have given me such a warm welcome to The Oasis. I definitely plan to keep posting and becoming a regular on the site. I have met thousands of classic Hollywood fans from around the world in recent years, but none so truly interested in the real stories and sagas tha...

Re: Welcome to the Q & A with Casey LaLonde

Dear Professional Tourist, Thank you for the question on what would have been a knock-out quasi sequel to Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?. Joan didn’t make it through much of the production before she claimed “ill” and left the film. Olivia de Havilland was a good friend of Bette Davis and agreed to...

Re: Welcome to the Q & A with Casey LaLonde

Good evening charliechaplinfan! Thank you for introducing Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. as a topic. I have never seen a copy of The Fairbanks Album and should probably just order a copy from used bookseller. Joan and Doug indeed had a fairly good marriage, although they were both so young working in the hi...

Re: Welcome to the Q & A with Casey LaLonde

Hi Joe, Bob Thomas’ biography is a good, standard look at my grandmother’s life and career. Nothing explosive, but just a good read. I revisited Harriet Craig about two years ago and I agree. Her character was one of the most plainly evil women on screen during the era, trying at all times to contro...

Re: Welcome to the Q & A with Casey LaLonde

Good evening Stuart, Shorter hairstyles for older women usually always work. In both Autumn Leaves and Johnny Guitar, Joan was wearing the short, although certainly not pixie style, hairdos. It just worked for her, as with many other Hollywood actresses of a certain age. Bette Davis was the same way...

Re: Welcome to the Q & A with Casey LaLonde

Good evening Chris! Well, you are right. The Women is one of the funniest films of the 30’s with some of the sharpest dialogue ever written for the silver screen AND of the only Crawford comedies. There were light comedic elements in some of her early silents, but Joan was mostly a song and dance an...

Re: Welcome to the Q & A with Casey LaLonde

Good evening kingrat! Thank you for the warm welcome! Rain is definitely an overlooked Crawford film and fans like us know good performances when we see them. Some background on Jeanne Eagels’ role on Broadway as Sadie Thompson. Rain was seen on Broadway by over one million audience members in over ...
